Earlier this week I found myself in the Koru lounge at Wellington airport waiting for a delayed flight.
I was using the time to arrange an upcoming trip, and was quite surprised to see this brick wall when I tried to access TripIt.com:
The “Your organisation…” is a bit misleading. I was just using the free wifi point.
If anybody from Air NZ is reading … what?
I realise it’s been a few years since I worked in a big corporate, so I might just be unaccustomed to being treated like a little kid by an IT department, but seriously what are you trying to prohibit here. You don’t want me to visit travel related websites while I’m in the Koru lounge?
What’s worse, you actually allow me to do it, but you want to make me feel naughty in the process? As it was I just clicked the “Use Quota” button and it let me straight through. What other sites you don’t think are acceptable, I wonder?
By the way, speaking of Air NZ and TripIt…
Has anybody else run into problems with the new format e-tickets emails that Air NZ have introduced recently? I’m using Mail.app on OS X and am having a problem with the attachments:
The item in the inbox has 9 attachments, but the message itself has only 6. The 3 that are missing are the PDFs with the booking details.
When I forward to TripIt it is no longer able to automatically add the booking as it has in the past.
When I look at the same message through gmail.com it has all 9 attachments and works fine when I forward to TripIt, so it would seem to be a Mail.app problem.
Is this just me, or have others seen this too?
Kim from AirNZ added this comment. Good news!
“Air NZ recently updated the design of its e-tickets, at the same time upgrading the system which generates the email and attached documents. The PDF and calendar appointment missing from the email when viewed in the Apple Mail client is a teething problem which is being actively closed down. We hope to have a fix in place later in the week.”
